We visited Trees Restaurant on Saturday night to celebrate a family birthday. The staff were welcoming and served a special birthday dessert platter as a surprise, which was lovely. The experience was marred by a very long wait for the main course, though. We were a table of five, the restaurant was nearly empty and we waited for over an... More

Excellent selection of breakfast items. Dinner has an extensive menu and everything is fresh and well-prepared. Located within the Townhouse Hotel, it is convenient and reasonably priced.

We stayed int the Townhouse Hotel where Trees is located, so we went there several times as a convenience. But it really was first-rate. It was reasonably priced, had some excellent wines, and the service (as in the hotel) was really good. If you wonder why you should eat in a hotel restaurant other than one in which you are... More

I had breakfast in the restaurant and it was exactly as ordered. I enjoyed having streaky bacon available instead of just the usual back bacon most hotels offer. The meal was cooked exactly as ordered. Expensive for a simple English breakfast but delicious.

My family dined at Trees Restaurant on Mother's Day. From the time we arrived, the staff were friendly, attentive and incredible. My young daughter had the most fun interacting with many of the staff members. The food was good. If any criticism, the moussaka was slightly underdone. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Well named, central location, great staff. Looking for a special place to dine? This is it. Menu varied and the food was fantastic. My husband is a fussy eater and he is still talking about the food, more than a week later! A business dinner became a lovely romantic experience. We will be back!

(So I'm pretty biased because any place that can work candy floss into their dessert is going to get two thumbs up from me) We stumbled upon this restaurant while looking for a venue for New Year's Eve dinner. They caught our attention because their prices were reasonable as opposed to the exorbitant prices most of the other city restaurants... More

Within ten minutes of sitting down I saw that this is a well loved restaurant. One gentleman gave the waitresses a hug and a bottle of wine as a gift for their attentive service. a lady sat down and within seconds she had her drink; clearly a regular . My starter of tempura prawn salad was excellent, my main of... More

  • This restaurant is at Townhouse Hotel
Trees restaurant overlooks a leafy avenue adjacent to the famed Dutch East India Company Gardens. Thanks to the restaurant's location on the hotel's first floor, and its large glass windows, the experience emulates that of being in a tree house. The 100-seater restaurant has a contemporary look and feel with some striking red accent pieces, a few ladder-back chairs, origami-inspired lampshades and an eye-catching installation at the restaurant's entrance.
